Sommario

Across Europe, new forms of employment are emerging that are different from traditional standard or non-standard employment in a number of ways. Some transform the relationship between employer and employee, some change work organisation and work patterns, and some do both. This report identifies nine forms of employment that are new or have become increasingly important in Europe since the year 2000. While there is wide diversity in terms of their characteristics and employment relationship, all the forms aim to increase flexibility for employers and/or employees. Although some have the potential to benefit employers and employees equally, in a few cases concerns have been raised about their impact on working conditions and the labour market. The report concludes with recommendations about the need to raise awareness of the potential problems and establish safety nets for workers. Individual case studies are also available.

    Nuove forme di occupazione

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    In tutta Europa stanno emergendo nuove forme di occupazione che differiscono in vari modi dal tradizionale lavoro convenzionale o non convenzionale. Alcune trasformano il rapporto tra datore di lavoro e lavoratore, alcune modificano l’organizzazione del lavoro e i modelli lavorativi e altre ancora producono entrambe le conseguenze. Questo progetto, a partire all’incirca dal 2000, ha individuato nove forme di occupazione che in Europa sono nuove o di crescente importanza. Nonostante siano diverse tra loro, offrono tutte una maggiore flessibilità ai datori di lavoro o ai lavoratori oppure a entrambi. Alcune hanno il potenziale di essere ugualmente vantaggiose sia per i datori di lavoro che per i lavoratori, ma altre destano preoccupazione riguardo al loro effetto sulle condizioni di lavoro e sul mercato del lavoro. La presente relazione formula raccomandazioni politiche sulla sensibilizzazione in merito ai potenziali problemi e sulla creazione di reti di sicurezza per i lavoratori.
